Crookham Infant School
We love God because He first loved us. To understand the love of God the Father we teach the Parable of the Prodigal Son. You can watch an animation of the story here:
Remember to always watch with a grown up as Youtube can have adverts.
There is no better example of loving others regardless of belief and background than the example of Jesus. We teach this value through the Parable of the Good Samaritan. You can watch an animation of the story here:
Jesus was called ‘Rabbi’ or teacher by his first students – the disciples, but he made learning irresistible to everyone in his often outdoor ‘classroom’. We teach the value of loving learning through the Parable of the Sower.
